The November General Election Will be Jeanne Ives v. Chris Kennedy

Mike Houlihan and I were talking about the looming general election and both of us feel it will be a barn burner, thanks to this March Primary shenanigans ( JB's Black Blago Blather & Bruce's Bosco Bunkum larded with his Ives/Madigan Metamorphosis) indicating a less than vigorous turn-out for JB and a dandy Rauner kick-to-the-curb.

The two people with the millions invested in their own personal interests will be disappointed. Rauner and Pritzker will have wasted more dollars than a rouge Gamblers Anonymous junket to Vegas. 

Jeanne Ives has a mere 3.5 millions dollars in her war chest and Chris Kennedy bests her pile by a mere $2m.

Daniel Biss is the guy that New York wants, but he is still Danny Biss. Chris Kennedy and Jeanne Ives are mirror campaigns; Ives is the right choice and Chris Kennedy is the one the other side will settle upon, by March 20, 2018.

  • Black voters won't and JB will need to content himself with marijuana futures.
  • Unions will stay for JB, but the rank and file will vote for Chris Kennedy
  • Ives will get many Democrat votes, retired, or non-union voters who could careless about drawing a GOP ballot this go-around
  • Illinois is more than ready for a huge change and Chris Kennedy's primary victory will be the starting gun for the challenge to Rahm Emanuel
  • The beating of JB Pritzker by Primary voters is the thumbs-way-down on Mayor Coon-eyes -definately and the oafish Dick Durbin - early JB cheerleader.

Houlihan and I agree, " The plutocrats have jumped the shark."   Pro Publica's Mick Dumke offers this graphic:
